About us

Geophysics at the Freie Universität Berlin

As a subdivision of geosciences geophysics deals with the physics of the earth. This means geophysics examines the (physical) properties of the earth and its processes within the earth. 

Our department of geophysics actively takes part in teaching. Besides attending regular specific courses, students can write their bachelor- or master's thesis here.

The actual research focus are described by the topics of the working groups as follows:
